Real Food Wednesday 5/11/11

May 11, 2011 · 90 comments


It’s that crazy time of the week when you entice us with your links and comments to go check out your blogs and your great REAL FOOD WEDNESDAY tips and ideas or recipes!  (Visit that link if you’re new and want to learn more about this blog carnival.)  Remember, if you’re a blogger, you’ll draw some good traffic to your site by participating!  (This is how I built up my traffic in the beginning.)


1.  It’s not easy for me to catch them all on my own, and I’d really like everyone to play fair, so if you see any posts that don’t link back to this post (blog carnival etiquette you know!), can you email me please?  If you don’t know how, I explain it at this REAL FOOD WEDNESDAY link.  (I hate playing hardball and removing links, so let’s all be good to the others who are bringing more traffic to your blogs with their links by doing the same, OK?) 

2.  Also, PLEASE let me know if you see a recipe posted that is blatantly not Real Food.  Someone who is striving and on the journey is one thing (as we all are), but if it’s really bad (canned bread, Velveeta, margarine, Egg Beaters, unfermented soy or any other fake food), please tell me so I can remove it.  (If I’ve removed your post, I hope there are no hard feelings, but people come to this post for Real Food ideas, and I don’t want to disappoint.)

3.  I hope you’ll retweet and stumble this post and also any sites you visit – this will get more exposure to all of us, thank you!

4.  Don’t have a blog?  We still want to hear from you!  Please leave your tips or recipes in the comments.

Thank you!

You’re up, and we can’t wait to see your stuff!

    Hi Kelly,

    Hope you’re having a great week & had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I’m sharing an EASY & Frugal Stovetop Chicken Parm Pasta this week. I love that it keeps my kitchen cool & that I can stretch 2 hormone free chicken breasts into a meal that feeds my family of 5 with leftovers. Let me also add…it’s a man pleaser. My hubby doesn’t complain about the lack of meat.

    Have a GREAT week!!

    Hi! I’ve been out (happily) tromping through the weeds, as usual. This week, I’m spotlighting a plant that is really handy because it’ll draw out the poison of a bite or sting. But, heck, it just tastes great too. Look for this one, it’s worth knowing!


    3 Lori @ Laurel of Leaves May 11, 2011 at 12:40 am

    Loving all the real food sharing! I’ve posted my Lemon Blueberry Muffins made with xylitol. Warm, sweet goodness that’s actually good for you!


    4 Tina (PinayInTexas) May 11, 2011 at 1:28 am

    Linking up my Beef Brisket with Corn Kernels in Mushroom Sauce for this week! Tnx again for hosting!


    5 Kelly @ The Nourishing Home May 11, 2011 at 1:39 am

    Thanks so much for hosting! Always a treat to share new recipes and ideas. I put you logo in my recipes on FB and will post a link on my wall as well. Blessings, Kelly <3

    My post this week is about how grateful I am for grassfed meat and real food. Following the Weston A. Price diet literally saved my life and health. I am grateful for all who spread the word about real food. This includes you, Kelly! And everyone who blogs about real food on Wednesday (or any other day).


    7 Wendy (The Local Cook) May 11, 2011 at 3:08 am

    Thanks for hosting! My post includes a couple of free downloads for menu planning in season. Now that the farmer’s markets are open and asparagus and rhubarb are available here, it’s time to get back into the menu planning habit to take advantage of the fresh produce.


    8 Jill May 11, 2011 at 5:35 am

    Hi Kelly,
    I shared my delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt with a video and two articles that I hope you enjoy!


    9 Belinda @zomppa May 11, 2011 at 5:42 am

    Thanks for hosting – looks like another great week!


    10 Rhi@The Challenged Cook May 11, 2011 at 6:00 am

    Thanks for hosting Kellie. I’m halfway through a challenge to re-invent the same three recipes with the same basic ingredients as many times as possible. Today I’ve linked up a frittata, pineapple salad, and some chocolate cookies. All in one post.


    11 Jenn V. May 11, 2011 at 6:20 am

    #20 – A fun and easy project for anyone to grow delicious and beautiful salad greens. Thanks for hosting, Kelly!


    12 Soli @ I Believe In Butter May 11, 2011 at 6:37 am

    I’ve been taunting people on Facebook for a few days with a low carb, grain free recipe for something I grew up with. Swedish pancakes are a beautiful thing, and I feel so happy to be able to eat them while avoiding grains.


    13 Adrienne @ Whole New Mom May 11, 2011 at 6:42 am

    Thanks again for hosting, Kelly!

    I am sharing our latest healthy sweet treat: Easy Almond Butter Truffles. I have, as always, provided alternatives for those w/ special diets.


    14 Jenn May 11, 2011 at 7:17 am

    This week I’m sharing amaranth in chicken broth– very simple, but very good!


    15 Primal Toad May 11, 2011 at 7:26 am

    Taco Bell… is this possibly the #1 least healthy fast food restaurant chain? I answer that question in the blog post. The ingredient list for steak, seasoned beef and more disgusts me like no other. I pray they go bankrupt asap!


    16 Peggy May 11, 2011 at 8:05 am

    Yum! Grassfed Canadian bacon? On a sourdough pizza crust! Oh boy!


    17 Michelle at Openeyehealth May 11, 2011 at 8:31 am

    Hi Kelly! Thanks for hosting :) I shared a salmon and cream cheese recipe for this week. It makes a great snack!


    18 Sarah Smith May 11, 2011 at 8:40 am

    I’ve shared recipes for grain-free lime and coconut macaroons as well as herbed pork and cabbage stew. Both are GAPS-legal and delicious! Thanks!


    19 jenna Food WIth Kid Appeal May 11, 2011 at 9:03 am

    a reader sent in this fun omelet recipe. she made this for her daughter when suddenly refused to eat eggs. can’t have eggs on the no-thanks list! too many necessary easy to digest nutrients in them. happy wednesday, thanks for hosting kelly.


    20 Jennie@ Pure Homemaking May 11, 2011 at 9:04 am

    Thanks for hosting again Kelly! I shared a recipe for Apple Spiced Pop-Over. It’s a fun way to spice up the breakfast routine and it would also be great for brunch because it has a lovely presentation. I can’t wait to check out some of these other recipe’s and posts!


    21 Jill @ The Prairie Homestead May 11, 2011 at 9:34 am

    Sharing my simple, shortening free pie crust recipe today! When we made the switch to real foods, I really struggled giving up my Crisco pie crusts… Until I figured out this recipe. No more rancid veggie oil crusts for us!

    Thanks for hosting Kelly! Have a great rest of the week.


    22 Megh May 11, 2011 at 9:43 am

    Thanks for hosting! I posted a summary of our experiences and foods from the first stage of the GAPS intro diet. Not so fun, but definitely worth the effort!


    23 Laurie May 11, 2011 at 9:45 am

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! This week I’m kicking back with a glass of golden fairie nectar AKA dandelion wine. :-) I finally tapped into the batch I made last year, and it is really good. It’s also a traditional medicinal. Time to put those “weeds” to work.


    24 Danielle @ Analytical Mom May 11, 2011 at 9:52 am

    Thanks for hosting! I posted my latest sprouted granola experiment… it turned out pretty well!


    25 Wysteria May 11, 2011 at 9:54 am

    Yay, it’s my first time posting here! I am sharing my Ginger Lemon Coconut Cream Ice Cream recipe. I hope others enjoy it!



    26 Kimberly Hartke May 11, 2011 at 9:57 am

    Today I am contributing a guest post about a Small Farm Summit held on Long Island in New York. The word is getting out, REAL FOOD ROCKS!


    27 Grace May 11, 2011 at 9:58 am

    Thanks for hosting! This week I shared a recipe for a spinach smoothie! Enjoy!


    28 Nourishing Nancy May 11, 2011 at 10:00 am

    Thanks for always hosting this terrific event, Kelly! It brings over so many wonderful visitors!!

    My teeth are the topic of discussion this week, and I’ve put it in a video for all to see. The teeth really are making some transformation.

    As always, I wish my parents had known about a nutrient dense diet, so that I would have been blessed with the teeth nature intended. I wish I had known about the diet so my own children didn’t need braces, as well.

    But this is why we blog and get the word out about the dangers of processed denatured food and the amazing benefits of giving our body what it truly needs to function at it’s best!


    29 Outlaw Farmer May 11, 2011 at 10:02 am

    Hi Kelly, thanks for hosting another week of Real Food Wednesday. I am excited to get some new recipes for my summer menu. I posted a simple vinaigrette recipe that is my personal favorite for spring field greens. It goes really well with goat cheese too.


    30 simplychele May 11, 2011 at 10:20 am

    Hi Kelly, thanks for hosting this link- it’s wonderful! We have been making fresh farm cheeses for the past few years. Today we would like to share our recipe and process for making a simple, tasty cheese called Panir.


    31 Ashley May 11, 2011 at 10:30 am

    Hi RFW gang!

    This week I got to test out my new stand mixer and ice cream maker for my birthday and made homemade ice cream, the best ice cream I’ve ever had!

    I hope everyone has a great week and thank you, Kelly, for hosting!


    32 Andrea (Andreas Kitchen) May 11, 2011 at 11:05 am

    Hi Kelly! I am sharing my recipe for Italian Sausage Sauce On Zucchini Ribbon “Pasta”. This dish is gluten free and very low carb since there is no “real” pasta in it.
    Thanks for hosting!


    33 Jessica@Crunchy-Chewy Mama May 11, 2011 at 11:13 am

    I’m finally getting in gear with organ meats and am enjoying (dairy-free) pastured chicken liver pate with grain-free almond flour “bread.”


    34 Carolyn Kennedy May 11, 2011 at 11:20 am

    This post is on my new blog- all about living a Real Food dairy-free diet in the Real World! I don’t live off the grid, my veggie garden is pretty small, I have a small food budget, and an equally small freezer! I also am not unknown to the interior of some local restaurant, lol. :)

    BUT, even if I laspe at times I know the wonderful healing & health in REAL FOOD!! This linked post is just fun!!

    I shared two different recipe for good ol’ ranch dressing! MMM :) Sans commercial crap. Also, now that the weather is nice, I suggest what I call a “messy fingers” meal idea for your family. Fun Fun!!


    35 Lady Kay's Kitchen May 11, 2011 at 11:21 am

    Hi Kelly! My post is: Turkey pesto sliders made with homemade honey-wheat-sandwich-buns! So delicious!


    36 Aimee @ Simple Bites May 11, 2011 at 11:22 am

    Hey, it’s my first time linking up! Thanks for hosting, Kelly.


    37 Mindy @ The Purposed Heart May 11, 2011 at 11:23 am

    Hi Kelly! Thank you so much for hosting Real Food Wednesday. I am sharing one of my husbands favorite dishes – Spinach Ricotta Pie. We make it with homemade ricotta and it is simply delicious!

    Thank you again,


    38 Mindy M May 11, 2011 at 11:57 am

    My family loved this real food alternative to packaged breakfast food. Since rhubarb is fresh right now, I made several batches.


    39 Laura--The Sushi Snob May 11, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    I added my recipe for “Mexican” Casserole. This is my first time posting here, so I didn’t post the link quite right. I used my name instead of the recipe name…whoops. I hope I haven’t broken any rules…


    40 Kelsy @ The Liberated Kitchen May 11, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    I linked to our post, “Crazy Diet People, Part 1,” about not discounting our diet choices as “crazy,” but instead, being proud of our choice to change our lives for the better through real, nourishing foods.


    41 dani May 11, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    I added my recipe for gluten free clams linguine! Thanks for hosting!


    42 Melissa @ Dyno-mom May 11, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! Wow, the party is jumpin’ today! I tried the one-rise method of sourdough last night and baked it up this morning. It is stupid easy, less sour, and light and fluffy like commercial yeast bread. It is Joey approved, but more importantly it is Greg approved, my resident sourdough hater. He LOVED it and said he wished I would stop making sourdough and just make this. I am pleased!


    43 Rachel (Girl In An Apron) May 11, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    Just added my favorite party dish: Roasted Beet Stacks layered with local goat cheese. Loving all the great recipes this Wednesday. Time to get cookin’. . .


    44 Beth May 11, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    Am I too late to play today?? I wrote up simple directions to make some fried plantain and some plantain chips (Platanos Fritos y platanitos). The fried plantains are naturally sweet with no added sweetener at all and the chips are salty.

    Thanks for looking!


    45 goingoffthegrocerygrid May 11, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    I’m sorry, I’m new at this linking thing and I messed up and hopefully you can delete #88. I really like your website and am excited about taking a real food journey with our family! I hope I linked up right and re-linked right back to you… let me know if not so I can fix it! :)

    I linked to a bean and veggie soup that was really filling and satisifying last night! It is made with homemade chicken stock and vegetables from local farmers (from last years season stockpilled in deep freezer). It’s quick, easy and delicious!


    46 Self Sagacity May 11, 2011 at 6:13 pm

    Watched your video, I bet there are just tons wonderful tips! I hope more people would consider the benefits. Have a great day!


    47 Cristina May 11, 2011 at 6:37 pm

    Hi Kelly! I’m adding my latest post with thoughts on the 80/20 rule, New Orleans’ Beignets, and lard smoke point..


    48 Marelie May 11, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    Thanks for hosting.Its nice to be back here


    49 Garden Variety Mama May 11, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    Thanks for hosting again, Kelly! Today I’m sharing a recipe I don’t quite have a name for. It’s like a meatloaf got together with a falafel, and then you top it with a lemon-garlic-tahini sauce. Yum.


    50 Ruth May 11, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    Inspired by Butterpoweredbike’s post, I had to go and try out a plantain salad! Of course, I didn’t eat it plain – I topped it with my kids’ favorite dressing – Homemade Catalina French Dressing.


    51 Lisa @Granola Catholic May 11, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    This week is not a recipe but more of an example of how a real food meal can be quick, easy, tasty and nutritious all that the same time. I cooked this exact same meal one busy night last week.


    52 Dori May 12, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    Today I am sharing an article about golden, nutrient-rich, spring butter,
    Buttercup Butter: A Springtime Luxury and a recipe for homemade sweet cream butter.

    Best wishes & thank you Kelly!
